what does the bible say about ghosts?

The Bible does not make mention of ghosts, as the term “ghost” is a notion largely developed by Christians during the Middle Ages through Europe. Nonetheless, within context of biblical teaching, there may exist certain creatures which can be considered ghosts.

For example, one passage in Leviticus 20:27 tells us that those who “invoke satan,” or invoke sorcery might be cursed and become ˃˜strange spectral beings′ (though this should not be understood to mean literally evil spirits).

This supports an idea proposed throughout biblical scripture where it critiques how we forget about God and value things that produce nothing but trouble.
